The one bright spot in an otherwise dismal economy has been the IT job market. Despite volatile unemployment numbers, IT jobs have remained steady; in fact, many analysts expect companies will hire even more IT workers in 2013. This is good news - and we could sure use some good news nowadays.But it gets better. Not only will jobs be plentiful in 2013, you can also expect higher salaries. At least that's the takeaway from a recent survey by IT group Robert Half Technology.Basic "evergreen" jobs like network architects, for example, can expect a base salary ranging from approximately $100,000 up to $150,000.

Given the increasing complexity of corporate networks this should come as no surprise.Meanwhile, mobile development continues to be a hot skill, with workers expecting a salary ranging from $93,000 to $134,000.Bottom line: the jobs are there if you're willing to stay a step ahead.
